All businesses can be subject to bad publicity. All it takes is one negative comment on a blog or website with the right (or wrong) mix of traffic to drive a businesses’ reputation into the dirt. If a business has not heard of or is not employing Online Reputation Management (ORM), here are the basics and why this is something every business needs to start doing now.
What is Online Reputation Management (ORM)
ORM is the process of following online references or reviews to a brand, company, person or service while having a plan in place to deal with any negative feedback. It is a three-step process:
• Monitor – Maintain an ongoing system for researching and keeping track of public perception.
• Evaluate – Consider individual feedback.
• Take action – Implement a strategy to negate the negative review.
ORM is typically considered to be a mix of marketing and public relations. There are numerous firms offering ORM services that vary significantly in services delivered. Advantix Marketing believes it is one of the most professional and we deliver results.
Why Businesss must have an Online Reputation Management Program
Businesses live by their reputations and a poor reputation can have a negative impact on their services and sales while a stellar reputation can increase customers and lead to a very, very successful company.
How to Handle Negative Publicity
Ideally, with every project taken on and every relationship formed, businesses need to work toward building a professional reputation. Advantix Marketing can enhance the effectiveness of a positive review by providing leadership and direction with a successful program that builds stellar reputations.
But even if a business does everything right, there may come a time when negative publicity raises its ugly head. Harmful feedback can happen for many reasons – a misunderstanding, a wrong-doing on by an employee, varying points of view, a disgruntled former employee, a competitor, or any number of other reasons.
How a business reacts to negative feedback is dependent on the type of comment, who said it, what forum it was said in, and the potential it has to damage a business’s reputation. There are best practices to gauge the risk of negative publicity and determine how best to handle it. Advantix Marketing has a strategy that successfully guides its clients in this process.
